prefix containing symlink

I probably missed the discussion for this change in bootstrap/bootstrap:

bootstrap: prevent pkgsrcdir, prefix and wrkdir from being symlinks

What is the rationale behind it? I was just about to install into an
automounted directory and this prohibits it. Could you at least
provide an option to override this?
